What Do You Hear?

I think this sticker is really interesting. Presumably it's a bit of marketing for a band, but it really makes me think of the neurologically-based sensation called synesthesia. People who experience this phenomenon can literally "taste, feel and hear color."

i love that sticker! I think synesthesia can also mean any switching-for me i'll notice every once in a while that i associate colors with sounds, and i was fascinated to hear my dad express that for him jazz music was visual, like a kind of architecture...usually these thoughts are under the threshold of awareness though...

I think this sticker made me think of synesthesia because of you. :)

beebabz-Dad & I read your comment together, tres interestingl! I'm curious to explore you sound/color associations, are they musical? I visualize chords/changes, but perhaps not in an architectural way, that is cool! Thanks little miss spy for your always keen observations. beebabz what up with the secret blog?!? :)
